This is my darling girl Nina. She was adopted earlier this year from a kennel and I love her to pieces. She's a complete diva though and is certainly the queen of the house.
I think Nina is proof that you don't need to be a purebred to be beautiful. I've noticed that many people mistake cats like her for Turkish Angoras, but we believe her to perhaps be some kind of distant Persian-mix. I'm unsure of her history prior to coming into my care though.
